Translating International Models of Accountable Care for High-Need, High-Cost Populations in the United States
Driven by aging populations, rising expectations for high quality care and the increasing burden of chronic diseases, countries around the world are implementing accountable care principles to address these emerging health care challenges. We have systematically applied an accountable care framework to describe and analyze value-based policy, organizational competencies and political environments in a variety of case examples from Germany, the Netherlands, Nepal, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Based on these examples, we have developed policy implications that payers and policymakers in the US could adapt to better support providers who are transforming the way care is delivered. The purpose of this event is to share our research findings from the five international case studies and preliminary lessons learned from the international examples with health policy leaders.
